Sanlitun Huatong International Youth Hostel
Ranked #217 of 1,421 Beijing B&B and Inns
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Do not expect more than a hostel, but for that it is great! Nice atmosphere, rooms are ok although some would need re-painting. Food and staff is nice. The hostel is easily accessible from the Dongsishitiao metro station by aprox 10 min walk. Beijing has a great metro network connected to the airport so even from the airport the hotel is aprox 40 min away. Based on its good location al sights are easy to reach and the staff will be happy to help with tours aroun Beijing as well like the Great Wall!

I have nothing bad to say about this place. It nice and the staff is very friendly. The common area is a nice area to hang out in and it used by many people. Nice food (though a little expensive), and also a nice outside area. There's no reason why you shouldn't stay here. Maybe the direct area surrounding the hostel is not that nice, but it's not too far away from nice places to go to.

Easy to find. Close to metro (line 2) close to bar street and other shops. Hostel has outdoor sitting area, indoor cafe sitting area with a tv and a pool games room. My room was on the 4th floor, private twin with bathroom. Should have paid less and shared a bathroom as they are clean. Great stay and will recommend to friends.

We were a group of 5 that stayed here for 3 nights over the weekend, and we have nothing but positive things to say about this hostel. We rented a 6 bedroom dorm for a very reasonable price. Wooden bunkbeds, sheets and linen included, personal outlets and nightlamp for each bed The staff is really friendly, they speak english very well, the place is clean, the bar area is cozy, nice breakfast, good atmosphere. A bit far from the metro, but we really didn't mind. There are a lot of restaurants in the area too. Highly recommended. We would definitely stay here if we come back to Beijing someday.

This place is located in a good area with lots of cheap and local food places. The guesthouse is nice, it has a chilld out laid back common rooms and I met a lot of people here. Close to Sanlitum bar area where you can have some good nights! The metro is a bit far. 15 minute walk, something like that. Some staff are great and helpfull (mostly the girls) some other staff is less friendly. But after all, a very good place to stay! Oh and almost forgot, second floor had a terrible smell around the bathroom.

I stayed here for 3 nights with a couple friends while we did some sightseeing around Beijing. The hostel is a bit difficult to find the first time but the staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean. We split a room with 3 beds, the bathrooms was small but had everything needed. Food at the hostel was also good and reasonable (especially if you're still getting used to Chinese food).

We did one of the great wall tours through the hostel and found it be pretty good value as it included both breakfast, lunch, bus transportation and entry to the wall.
